In the London Canal Museum you can take a look at a narrowboat, get an impression about the history of the London canals, about the loads that were transported, the people who lived and worked on the waterways and the horses that pulled their boats. Immerse yourself in the unique legacy of a large Victorian ice cream warehouse, which was used to store ice imported from Norway and transported by ship and canalboat. The museum is an attraction housed in a former ice warehouse, built around 1862 for Carlo Gatti, the famous ice maker and is about the history of ice making and the role of canals in it. This is the only museum in London about the inland waterways.

Great in combination with a canal boat trip from the London Waterbus Company.
